Ive been chatting with a friend today about my big baby Edward.. Talking about all the funny things that Edward does and I thought what would be better than to share all of this with you!

baby Edward
I have Edward for 2yrs now... His bday is 4/15/10. I got him as a puppy.  He was the cutest puppy ever and super loving!!!  From day one, I knew he was different.  And I have to say, he is probably one of the best dogs I have ever owned!!!

When he was a puppy.. he was so chubby that he couldn't even climb up on the couch!  I thought it was a shame... now I wish he was still like that.. because that dog. that dog can jump up on just about anything!!!  I swear he thinks he's a mountain goat!!  He jumps on the trampoline, the dog house, the kitchen table (lovely huh?!) and sometimes over the fence.

He also thinks he's a lap dog and should be on your lap at all times!!
my lap dog

This dog loves me so much. I don't think i have ever had a dog love me as much as this dog does.  He wants to be with me, always.  He once jumped thru my bedroom window, threw the screen just so he could be with me. He will come into the shower with me and wants to sit on my lap while I go potty.

I think he thinks he's one of my kids at times too!!  He will jump on the trampoline with the kids and sometimes with out.  In the summer time when I bring out the big blow up water slide he will try and climb up it with the kids and as soon as they come down into the little pool at the bottom- he's right there ready to lick them!

play time. 
He has this tail on him that I swear could be used as a weapon. I really do think its longer than its supposed to be and he will be so happy and wag it so hard you will hear it go thud-thud-thud against each side of his rib cage.  It also hurts like heck when it hits you!!  OUCH!!!

Only thing I dislike about my big baby... He HATES other animals besides our chihuahua :-( I wish he would be able to play well with others so we could have puppy play dates. :-(
OH and that he likes to jump our fence when he sees a bird or a squirrll and go chasing after it.  This morning I had to litterally pick him up and carry him back into our house cuz he was so stubborn that he wouldnt come!!  
OH. and how messy he is... always always always messing in something.  There have been times that I'll leave a box with pizza in it on the counter.. go to the bathroom.. come back out - box is still on the counter... but the pizza is gone!!!  or donuts. or cookies.. lol.

Something cute that he does.. that I just find hilarious... when he wants to play, he will run into one of the kids bedrooms- grab one of their stuffed animals... and run!!! Anything to get the kids to chase him!!

I could go on and on about all the little quirks that Edward has or how loving he is... but Im sure by now you are ready to move on to the next blog! lol.
he loves me

monday. oye

My Monday is starting out sitting on my couch while a plumber tries to unclog my toilet. My lil baby girl accidentally flushed a stick of deodorant down the toilet over the weekend.  Fun times, Fun times.

The plumber just shut off the water and of course as soon as he did, I think of a half dozen things I'd like to do around the house... which includes, washing the dishes, doing laundry, water the flowers... hhhmmm.. figures, as soon as I have no water... I want to use water.  lol.

So instead of doing all that, I am sitting here doing a blog post and watching Spongebob... for oh, the 15th time this weekend.

We had a pretty good weekend. Friday we had baseball and Lil Man did awesome!!! His team won 26-7!!!!  We were so excited!!  They have only won a few games, so every victory is amazing!!! After that I took him to his dads and then me and baby girl went home and went to bed. (im getting old)

Saturday we headed over to my friends house and helped her clean and organize her garage.  Afterwards we hung out and got some wings for dinner.

Sunday I went to church with her and it was really nice. Her church was lovely.  After church, I went home and got some laundry done and the house cleaned up a bit. Then we headed to my dads and went out to dinner with him. After that we went to my mom and stepdads for dessert.

all in all it was a wonderful weekend.

ps. the plumber just came out and let me know that he's having too many problems and that his boss is coming out and see if they can fix it together.  oye. can ya say $$$$$$  gggrrr.. :-(

Hope yall have a blessed week!!!

The coffee just aint working fast enough this morning.
As I sit here and type this out all I keep thinking is I want to go back to bed.  Just 20 more minutes of sleep and I will be good.
But in reality, I think I could sleep the day away.  Kinda like I did yesterday.
I was in bed Saturday night by 1230.  Up at 9.  and did nothing.  Napped at 2-430 or so. And was in bed last night by 11.

Idk if its just life...  or if it could be the new meds I am on... I started taking Zoloft last Tuesday. And its been a hell of a week physically for me.  Tuesday night I ended up with food poisoning I believe from the Chinese food I had for dinner.   That effected me till about Friday.  Nothing seemed appetizing and I just barely ate anything.   Then starting Friday night, I was just exhausted... more so than normal. So again, I don't know if its the meds I am on... the effects of bad food and not eating well and dehydration last week... or just life!!

But the good thing... I don't feel like crying over everything... The things that were upsetting me the week before are now just... blah.

And I got an appt with the pastors of my church to talk with them about everything I am going thru...  so.. hopefully that will help also... and my best friend is going to get me in touch with a lady from his church that does counseling also.

At this point I feel like I can use all the help I can get... but now.. now that I am not all depressed and wanting to cry over everything... I am really nervous about talking to someone... I haven't openly talked to anyone in years...  I have used my blog as my therapy... so this will be different... but I know good.

They can't be a Christian

" I Judged people by my measuring stick, but my measuring stick was way off. I made faulty judgements based on a wrong perception of the truth. All the while I was the one with the problem"

God is so good!!!  I woke up late and felt more rushed during my God time this morning... but He is still so good.  He gave me an "AHA" moment. I love when He does that!!!  As I got ready for work I kept thinking about the above phrase.  I had an awesome blog post thought up.. but of course life happens and I forgot all that I was going to write. ugh.

This phrase this morning made me seriously stop and think.  Think about how we all (even Christians) and I am not excluded in this, JUDGE others.   We judge them based on how WE think they should be.  But really who are WE to say who someone else should be.

God made us all unique. Not one like another.  So who are we to say that someone else should be something we think is right?

I am the same way tho... I see other people, other Christians and think...  they do what?? they can't be a Christian.
They are drinking vodka? They can't be a Christian.
They are are divorced?? They can't be a Christian.
They have kids and ain't married? They can't be a Christian.
They are bisexual or gay? They can't be a Christian.
They are living with their gf/bf? They can't be a Christian.
They smoke cigarettes? They can't be a Christian.
They hand hang out with non-Christians? Shame on them. They can't be a Christian.
They curse. They watch porn. They this, they that. They can't be a Christian.

Those are just some of the first things that popped into my head... why? because I have thought them first hand... yet... the funny thing.... I could be put into more of those categories at one time or another, than not...  But I am a Christian.

And sometimes by today's standards, some things are ok but not others. Now adays its ok to be divorced, have kids out of wedlock but to be gay??  watch porn?? NO!!!!!   I am not saying I condone any of this... but who am I to judge someone based on a choice they make.  Hell, I've made my own choice and I am the only one who will have to answer to God for them. (uh oh, I said hell!!)

It is my choice on how I represent myself to them... Its my choice how I represent Christ to them.  And it is my choice how I think about a person and how I react to those thoughts that I do have.  I am no saint, very very very far from perfect.. yet at times, I sit here, like everyone else, and judge someone. Sadly its part of human nature... part of society.   And I know I am judged.. by many.   But I don't hide anything.  I am open. and I am learning.  I know I will never be perfect.  Only ONE MAN IS PERFECT.

Its sad. I see a lot of people in my life judging someone else. Willing to just write them off based on what they see.  What makes me even more sad, is that I see a lot of Christians doing that... and then I judge them lol.  I am no better.

Christian Mingle. com

A little over a month ago, I was contacted by a wonderful woman about a free month subscription to, A Christian online dating site.  I thought about it and figured what the heck I would give it a try. She had read some of my previous blog posts about dating and everything and thought Christian Mingle would be good for me.  So I tried it. 

I really like how it was God based. You automatically got signed up for another site called: Believe. com.   I liked how in depth the questions were and they had different quizzes and stuff to find out what "color" you were so you find other like individuals. 

The turn offs that I had was that the very first message I received was from a man asking me if I would be willing to have sex on the very first date.  Now I know this is the man and not the dating site... but it was just a real shocker because I wasn't expecting that kinda of thing on a Christian dating site... maybe a free site, but not one you paid for let alone a Christian site. Needless to say the man was blocked from that point on. 

I was very discouraged that most of the gentlemen didn't have a picture of themselves. It was a little frustrating, also, their "about me" sections would have a sentence and that's it.  It's hard to gauge a person based on one sentence and honestly I don't want to waste my time getting to know someone who's not going to have some of the same like minded ideas. 

Another thing that discouraged me is that it is free to set up your account. You can add pictures, browse other individuals, and send "smiles". But you can not initiate a conversation.  Its hard when I see someone who I am interested it, email them, and then get no reply. Maybe its cuz they weren't interested in me.. (and that's fine) but it could also be that they can't open or reply to my message. I wish they had a flag or something on the person's profile saying- "hey I'm not a paid member yet" 

I did exchange numbers with a few gentlemen who seem to be wonderful men of Christ. Time will tell with all that.  I would def recommend the site to others who are interested in a dating sight.  The pricing is affordable compared to some of the other bigger named sites.  
$29.99 for 1 month, $18.99 for 3 months and $13.99 for 6 months. All to be paid in one payment. 

I am very happy that I did join and gave it a try.. but honestly more and more I am learning that I am not ready for a relationship and that I need to get myself in a better place, mentally and emotionally and def spiritually before I can commit myself to a man.. (no matter how badly I want someone right now)
